Newquay in Cornwall holds a special place in my heart as I spent many weekends and bank holiday weekends there with friends when we are in our late teens and early twenties. I remember the wonderful beaches and sand, and great countryside that Cornwall offers.
Now here I am 25 years on writting about dog friendly Newquay!!
Newquay is always up there in the top 5 list of the nation’s favourite seaside holiday destinations for both dog friendly holidays and family holidays.
Newquay is on Cornwall’s Atlantic Coast, and has some truely magnificent beaches to expore with your dog. You can check the dog friendly beaches in Cornwall here.
